Playing at the Poppy Waterman Ice Arena for the final time this season, the
Badger Lightning varsity girls hockey team sent the home crowd home happy with its fifth win of the season, an 11- whipping of the Beaver Dam Golden Beavers.
The team’s six seniors were honored the previous week and make one final appearance on home ice, all six playing a key role in the lopsided win.
The home team went to work immediately, posting a 26-5 edge on the shots clock and rolling out of the opening frame with an already comfortable 4-0 cushion. By the time teams rolled into the third period, the Lightning owned a 6-1 lead and after a pair of early goals for the guests, the Lightning went back work scoring five of the final six goals.
Leading the offensive charge were seniors Ellie Goethel who notched a hat tick and set up another; Kaylee Engel with two goals and two assists and Allison Knull with a goal and three helpers.
Freshman Kayla Capener picked up a goal and two assists
fellow freshman Eryn Benson added three assists. Senior Baylee Babcock scored twice, sophomore Daelynn Merrell and freshman Bella Bowden both adding a goal and assist.
Other assists went to senior Emily Patton; sophomore Carson Blosenski and freshmen Mallory Ruhland and Lani Selje.
The Lightning will wrap up its regular season on the road against the Lakeshore Lightning on Friday.
